The motor road begins its steep
ascent at Black Mountain, wind-
ingSaround steep heights and oyer
deep valleys, the cars backing
around curves walled upon a
higher plane at each turn ot the
road. The scene is wonderful as,
you climb far over the forest cov-
erea peaks. In the. valleys can
be seen the little towns and vil
lages in distance, little dots like
toys in the plains below. We
reached Camp Alice, the terme-
nus of the road at eleven o’clock
where we had lunch, then began
the climb to the top When we
looked far above and saw the flag
waving from the top of the peak,
it seemed a distance, but fousd
it quite a nice trail with substan
tial seats along the way, and we
were soon at the top looking in
speechless wonder over the scene.
No pen can describe or brush
portray. One has to see froi
this height the beauty and won
der of this section of North Caro
lina, pronounced by world travel
ers to be the most beautiful on.
We looked from the observa
tory stationed on top of the peak
near by and others extending to
other states. Helow us were the
dark cloudslthrough which we had
come somewhat dampened, and
as we stood by Prof Mitchell’s;
